Phodographer Miguel Moreno in Boquete in Chiriqui Province, Panama, April 2010
Miguel is the official photographer for the American Ambassador to Panama. He was introduced to Dog Meets World and immediately saw the value of giving out personal photographs to children in need in his country. Since December he continues to take Foto and the printer with him on trips. This village is about 6 hours from Panama City in a lush mountainous region of Panama. He is proud to be a phoDOGraher for the project and tells everyone you too can join the community and touch lives with a small act that has a meaningful impact.
Best Foto of the Week!
